I'd prefer that outcome.

There's that line about the past is another country, and they do things
differently there; I think that's a distinction well worth maintaining
about XSLT 1 as distinct from current practise.

XSLT 2 and especially 3 are substantially more capable languages; I
would want to be making that clear from the outset, in "Only use 1 if
you're actively compelled" terms.
